I though all cameras with screens on the back were digital.

Could very well mean a camcorder.

I.E its on digital film (and watchable via LCD screen on the camcorder) but not viewable on a PC yet.


I still think its bollards though

Another Twincam 'truth stretch' unravels before our very eyes...

If you mean the one that redirect the links from here.. Its because they said we ruined one of their hide outs or something silly.

Hmmm - most of the places I looked at on their site were either openly listed or wouldn't take too long to work out, I'm sure.

They got all butthurt when a PHer posted a link about the Manchester canals and how to get in, resulting in anyone on there who was also on PH getting banned, including me despite the fact I had produced some reports on there such as Cambridge cranes, the millennium dome, some teaser pictures of Burlington bunker. So now they redirect any referrals to some st, no idea what as my referrals are turned off.

In return for their butthurt POD created a wikipedia page about them which they repeatedly vandalised in the hope it would be deleted

Just clarified the name with him - Sutton Bonington. Somewhere between Loughborough and Nottingham.

RAF Newton - looks like someone else got there first with a camera:

http://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/showthread.ph...
Thats quite some walking....takes almost 1/2 an hour by car. Would Wymeswold be possible? Its a sight closer though as its used for car driving possibly less likely. They have started doing some work on Newton in the last year or so to help with widening the A46 though.
The control tower looks like the one in Survivors at the end when they get to the airfield.

Only relaying what I saw - it was a large camera (big SLR-type-thing) with a screen on the back, but it took film and short bursts of video. This would've been about 2003. I don't know much about cameras I'm afraid.

The pictures looked pretty much like the other ones taken at RAF Newton, only in the dark with a flash. The missiles in question were small things (again, I don't know much about missiles but we're not talking cruise missiles here) that had probably been used in training.

I wasn't invovled with 'canalgate' in the slightest, not sure if I was even a member here then, but I got banned for no other reason than 'Pistonheads' and they must have made some effort to realise who I was on there was well.

You can't blame them.

They get invaded quite often by forums like Pistonheads who want all of the secrets whilst ignoring the rules and then acting like cocks when they don't get their own way.

Go on there, get involved and act decently and they will be very open and decent with people.

Am sorry did you miss the part where I said I wasn't involved with the argument? I am an avid urbexer and know how to behave on urbexing site. I was banned for being a member of here, I wasn't banned from here for being a member of 28DL, which I was before I was a member here. If you follow that.

They were probably just binning all Pistonhead accounts during the wind-up/invasion that happened.

I'd PM Oxygen Thief, he's a good guy and I'm sure will straighten it out.

ETA - I'm pretty sure it was Newton, simply because the more I see on UrbEx websites, the more looks familiar. I especially recognise this sort of thing from his snapshots:







And seeing things like this left behind really freaked him out:







It seems it's been fairly well covered by other UrbExers, must've been terrifying at night, and apparently is now being flattened to make way for a new housing development.
Cock Womble should recognise these pics as I'm pretty sure RAF Newton is where the RAF Police were trained.
